2013-09-03 16:51:35 - Intranet software provider Claromentis has announced its first annual Next Generation Intranet Scholarship Scheme, available to undergraduates studying any discipline – located anywhere in the world. The Claromentis Scholarship Scheme will offer undergraduates the opportunity to shape the next-generation of intranet software whilst helping to part-fund their studies.
The Claromentis Scholarship Scheme encourages creative thinking and requires students to define the next-generation intranet software. Students can choose to take social functionality a step further, decide upon a third-party software mash-up, contribute a new product idea, or implement some user-interface enhancements – the student ultimately decides. The one overriding condition is that the idea or suggestion must be customer-focussed and created with the intention of making a positive difference to end-users.
Claromentis has developed this scholarship due to on-going advancements in social and mobile technology. These technological advancements are encouraging organisations to re-evaluate their intranets to meet employees’ changing expectations. For the last decade, Claromentis has worked with organisations to provide multi-generational intranet software with business, collaborative and social applications.
Their mission to provide productivity-enhancing intranets to organisations of all sizes and sectors has resulted in the recent development of a Social Project Management application and Learning Management System.
Further information including the scholarship brief, can be accessed directly from Claromentis’ website ( www.claromentis.com/scholarship/
). The application form can be submitted via the firstname.lastname@example.org
email address. The scholarships are worth £500/$750 and the closing date is November 24 2013.
Claromentis Co-Founder and Information Architect, Michael Christian comments: “The scholarship is designed to offer the next generation of employees a platform to voice their preferences and expectations concerning intranet functionality. We’ve worked closely with organisations over the last decade to re-establish their employees’ experiences due to emerging technology and we look forward to continuing this
